The new Honda 40hp outboard engine retains its class-leading lightweight, compact packaging, enhanced with PGM-FI electronic fuel injection. It features the innovative BLAST™ (Boosted low-speed torque) for rapid acceleration, ECOmo Lean Burn Control® for exceptional fuel economy at cruise and NMEA 2000® which shows all engine and fuel data on a GPS screen.
Lightest, most fuel efficient and best acceleration in class, the Honda 40 hp ticks all the boxes.
The BF40 and BF50 outboard engines retain their class-leading lightweight, compact packaging, enhanced with PGM-FI electronic fuel injection, Honda’s original Boosted Low Speed Torque (BLAST™) air/fuel ratio and ignition-timing technology, and Lean Burn Control® to deliver powerful startup and acceleration together with outstanding fuel economy during cruising (ECOmo).
A reduction gear is employed to achieve compact engine layout by offsetting the in-line three-cylinder engine forward, while a long-branch plastic inlet manifold and miniaturised electronic components further contribute to the class-topping lightweight, compact design.
Like Honda’s larger outboard engines, the BF40 and BF50 feature a striking ‘wing form’ design, emphasising the design concept of slimness and strength.
